come on.
• These batteries are for clock operation and alarm memory during power interruption. You
can not listen to the radio/iPod using battery power.
To check the batteries’ condition, unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet and plug it in
again after a few minutes. If the displayed time is incorrect, replace the batteries with new ones.
• Danger of explosion if batteries are incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent type.
• Be sure to install the batteries before unplugging the AC adapter.
• When the unit is going to be left unplugged for a long time, remove the batteries to avoid undue battery discharge and
unit damage from battery leakage.
• Do not dispose of battery in a fire; battery may explode or leak.
• Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Do not mix ALKALINE, standard (CARBON-ZINC) or rechargeable (NICKEL-CADMIUM) batteries.
CAUTION: When discarding batteries, environmental problems must be considered and local rules or laws governing the
disposal of these batteries must be strictly followed.
